Outdoor Christmas Lights: Make the Yard Sparkle
Use lights to dress up your outdoor space for the Christmas holiday period; you can choose from an array of exquisite items, such as lit garlands, snowflakes, stars, and trees; winter displays, pre-lit characters, and the trendy inflatable decorations; and much more.
Christmas lights and garlands for exterior use come in a variety of options: string, rope, net, and icicle LED lights. All are available in different colours for eye-catching displays; however, keep to a consistent colour scheme for visual appeal.
Always consider safety your top priority.
Add lights to the trees, bushes, and other plants in your yard and make it sparkle; any tree or bush will do, and the more, the merrier. Strings and ropes are a great choice for trees; nets work well for bushes; use clear mini lights that follow the outline of the branches to highlight the shape of a tree.
For a uniform, harmonious look and an attractive display decorate all trees and bushes. For trees that are close together, stretch a wire and hang lit themed figurines.
Consider adding a Christmas tree; when it comes to Christmas decorating, it is a classic item for your yard. Opt for either a big tree or a group of smaller ones. Artificial pre-lit trees are a great alternative; the traditional Bethlehem Christmas tree is always a smart idea.
However, you could lend your yard a modern look with a spiral, zigzag, or silhouette lighted tree.
Pre-lit Christmas characters create fantastic displays; arrange Santa on the sleigh and his reindeer, the most popular Christmas symbol, for a unique look of your yard. If you decide to highlight the religious aspect of Christmas, opt for a lighted nativity scene, it is an alternative to personalise your yard.
Generally, the display possibilities are limitless; your boundary of Christmas lighting ideas is only your imagination.
It is a smart concept to accentuate architectural elements with a Christmas flourish; when washed in lights, a simple trellis would definitely become a focal point of your yard; also, for a touch of drama, use lights to make the most of any garden statuary.
Scatter or group together glowing frosted globes for a spectacular winter display; arrange twinkling gift boxes, wrap elegant old-fashioned lanterns in lit garlands, or hang baskets lit from within; it is up to your taste and creativity to decorate your yard for a shining holiday look that makes it stand out from the others.
